Facebook cited in 20% of divorces

Facebook, the social networking site, is being blamed for 20% of divorce filings.  One British law firm, Divorce-Online, claims almost one in five petitions they processed cited Facebook.

Mark Keenan, Managing Director of Divorce-Online said: “I had heard from my staff that there were a lot of people saying they had found out things about their partners on Facebook and I decided to see how prevalent it was I was really surprised to see 20 per cent of all the petitions containing references to Facebook.”  Keenan continued, “The most common reason seemed to be people having inappropriate sexual chats with people they were not supposed to.”
